okay.so after i knit one i put it on the left needle. then i take the stitch behind it and pass it over and put that stitch on the right needle. then i knit the row. (which means i will be knitting that first stitch twice) is tha what you are saying?

No you don't knit the first stitch another time, just slip that one onto the right needle after you pass the other st over it.

It's a decrease because you take 2 sts and make one out of them, you don't knit the one you pass over.

Knit 1, put it back on the left needle. Pass the next st on the left needle over the one you put back (don't knit it, just slip it over the st). There's your dec; the one st will lie over the needle, then just move it back to the right needle without knitting again. It's probably easier to figure out with yarn and needles in hand.

This is actually just a convoluted way of making k2tog so it lies a little flatter, but you probably wouldn't see much difference if you did that instead. So just do k2tog and you can get on with the pattern.

okay last part of the back!! so excited.

Shape Shoulders and Neck: Next Row (RS): Bind off 3(4-6-5-7-8) sts, work until there are 9(11-11-13-13-15) sts on RH needle, join another ball of MC and bind off center 31(31-31-35-35-35) sts, k to end. Working both sides at once, bind off 3(4-6-5-7-8) sts at beg of the next row, then 4(5-5-6-6-7) sts at beg of the next 4 rows. AT THE SAME TIME, dec 1 st at each neck edge every RS row once.

okay so i did the first sentense. what does that mean "working both sides at once"?

After you bind off the center sts, your row is separated by them, so you need a 2nd strand of yarn, one for each side, and work on the shoulders at once.

At the same time means on the armhole edge you do different shaping than you do at the neck edge.

uh oh. i already binded off the stitches. can i add the new yarn after? can i add it right after the binded off stitches instead? also, how would that work. because while binding the thread continued to the other side. (left side ) by adding the yarn where the tell me wont i be adding it to the left side? then i will have two strands on one side... and how would i do it at the same time?

Yes, you can bind off the sts, finish the row, then turn and work across the WS with the same yarn to the bound off sts. Then drop it and take the new yarn to work the WS of the other shoulder. It doesn't really matter where you start knitting with the new yarn as long as you have one strand for each shoulder.
